"The Cursed" is a very unique free realtime-strategy game based on the Spring engine. The game is about bones, undead, demons, space marines and magic settled in a futuristic environment. It is a fresh mixture of gameplay elements from many popular RTS games.

The game features two unique races: The Cursed - a faction combining undead and demonic creatures and the Imperial Guards - human forces with high-tech weapons and incredible firepower. Many units in game have unique abilities, like burrowing, rocket jumping, teleporting, transmutation and aura casting. You will experience a war that is fought with tanks, guns, space crafts, bone dragons, priest, demons, werewolf and angels. And last but not least, your heroes can turn the tide of war easily.

For Linux & Mac users and everyone unwilling to wait for a new installer version: you have to install the game manually (as I don't have any idea about creating Linux or Mac installation files). First you need to install the Spring Engine manually and then put the game content into the Spring\games directory. You'll also have to install maps manually.

A lot has changed since the last news post for The Cursed. Brand new installer versions were released covering tons of changes that make the game better looking, more action packed and more balanced than ever before. Besides the continuous bug hunting, polishing and optimization of the game balance, following topics are major improvements.

New game mode: Control Point Victory

A new game mode was added that replaced and expanded the old King-of-the-Hill mode. Now, you have to capture and hold one or multiple points on the map to win a match. Team games are now possible, the UI features are improved and several scoring modes are available like count down, domination or tug of war. As known for the KOTH game mode you start with a little base and increased income that enables you to jump into the action directly.

Control point victory

"Make me pretty"

Normal maps were added for almost all big units and buildings - this was a ton of work. The visual effect further enhances the quality of all models especially visible when things are in motion or close-up.

Normal maps demonstration

Finally ingame: Super weapons

Super weapons are now included and can be accessed during late game. The imperials will use nukes that cause a significant amount of destruction in the target area. Nukes are available after upgrading the imperial Technology Center. The Cursed can summon a Hell Storm that is as destructive as the nuke and can be accessed after upgrading the Cursed Altar.

Normal maps demonstration

Be rewarded: End-game awards

All kind of awards will now show up in summary window at the end of the game. In earlier versions this functionality was already included. However, only a small fraction of the now included awards were available.

New awards added

Enhanced AI features

Many tweaks were implemented for different AI behaviors. Heroes will be rebuild in Skirmishes and will level up more robustly. Units that have the jump/teleport ability will react smarter now and Xenosect Goliaths will not show up too early in-game to avoid too much damage caused by neutral units.

Full metal map control

Game sided metal map control is now implemented. In-game you will identify this first by the new metal multiplier mod option that allows to define the metal output for every single game. The part that will not be seen is as important: the game now controls the whole metal layout of maps. Here, the metal map for individuals maps may be replaced to make it perfectly fit for The Cursed.

Polished UI

The old user interface for the Imperials sometimes had some visibility issues especially on snow/ice maps. This was greatly enhanced by the optimized UI which also has lots of other little optimizations included.

Polished UI

New map mix

A new set of maps was added to the installer which are both beautiful and a great layout. All predefined missions/matches were adapted accordingly of course. There are tons of additional maps out there of course.

If you want all bells and whistles (relating to graphics), the computer should have gaming hardware and be from the last 3 years. If you reduce the graphical details it should also run on older computers.
